    Educational Materials for Middle School. White-throated Sparrows Scientific Name Zonotrichia albicollis White-throated sparrows are song birds that migrate each year. They commonly range along the west coast and the southeastern states during winter and then migrate to Northeastern United States and Canada for summer. A more thorough understanding of natural variation in white-throated sparrow behaviour and endocrinology is essential to the design and interpretation of future studies and key to capitalizing on the full potential of this unique natural model. between behavioral phenotypes in female white-throated sparrows (Zonotrichia albicollis) General Cited by:

The white-throated sparrow is a passerine bird of the American sparrow family measures 15 to 19 cm ( to in) in length with a wingspan of 23 cm ( in). Typical weight is 22 to 32 g ( to oz), with an average of 26 g ( oz).Class: Aves. A white-throated sparrow banded in the United States lived at least 9 years and 8 months.

Range lifespan Status: wild 10 (high) years; Average lifespan Status: wild months Bird Banding Laboratory; How do they behave. White-throated sparrows migrate, flying south in. In most parts of the West, the smartly patterned White-crown is very common at one season or another: summering in the mountains and the north, wintering in the southwestern lowlands, present all year along the coast.

Winter birds usually live in flocks, rummaging on the ground near brushy thickets, perching in the tops of bushes when a birder approaches too closely.

In the East, the White. White-throated Sparrows usually forage on the ground in loose flocks, kicking the leaf litter back with both feet to uncover food. They will come to bird feeders if there is cover nearby. During the breeding season, they sing from trees, although they usually do not sing from very exposed perches.

The White-throated Sparrow's scientific name is Zonotrichia albicollis, derived from root words that are definitely applicable. Its species epithet comes from terms meaning "white" and "neck," while the genus is from the Greek zone or "band" and trichos or "hair"--together.

The White-throated Sparrow, like many of its relatives, eats mostly terrestrial arthropods (insects, spiders, millipedes, and centipedes) in summer and small fruits and seeds the rest of the year.

Overall, the diet is about 20 percent animal and 80 percent vegetable. White-throated Sparrow cm; 4 g. A fairly large, long-tailed sparrow, polymorphic in head colour (a few birds intermediate). Has median crownstripe and broad supercili. The chromosomal polymorphism linked to variation in social behavior in the white-throated sparrow (Zonotrichia albicollis) is a complex rearrangement and suppressor of recombination.

Identification Sparrows can sometimes be tricky to identify, but the distinctive head colouring of the white-throated sparrow makes it one of the more conspicuous species.

The top of the head is marked with bold black and white (sometimes tan) stripes, and the throat has a bright and wide white patch. Twenty-two of 26 white-throated sparrows, Zonotrichia albicollis, from Algonquin Park, Ontario, Canada, hosted 1 or 2 species of platyhelminths.

White-throated Sparrows are passerines in the family Emberizidae which consists of New World Sparrows and Buntings.

They are a large Sparrow that is inches (17cm) in size. White-throated Sparrows are monochromatic which means that males and females look alike. In a study of 35 white-throated sparrows five distinct karyotypes were observed. A chromosomal polymorphism is present which involves at least two pairs of macrochromosomes.

This species is phenotypically polymorphic with selective breeding occurring between morphs. Phenotype is related to chromosomal constitution, and selective breeding appears to maintain heterozygosity within Cited by:.
